What should I give up for Lent?

This is a good question. But it has a simple answer: whatever you can't live without! Do an inventory of your life, and ask yourself the question: "Could I do without X?" If your answer is no, then you must give it up. The first commandment tells us that we must worship God alone, and that we can have no other gods besides him. If there is anything that you are unwilling to give up, that should be where you start. It is our attachments to the joys of this life that keep us from God.

Needless to say, my annual custom of giving up non-alcoholic beer just won't cut it.
